Rapp-Owen Granary

This stunning and peaceful facility was acquired by David Dale Owen in 1843 and dates to the Harmonist period. Beautifully restored, the large sandstone, brick, and wood building has served since the early 19th century as a corn and flour mill, a warehouse, a scientific laboratory, and a museum.

Today, the facility is used for rehearsal dinners, weddings, receptions, business and professional meetings, conferences and luncheons. Each year the Granary also hosts New Harmony’s popular Under the Beams concert season.

The Granary is maintained by the Rapp Granary-Owen Foundation, Inc. It is supported by Events and Donations. For rental information, please contact Chris Laughbaum, 812.682.3050, ChrisJKSC@aol.com.
